Shocking Dark (1989)

aka Terminator II, aka Terminator II: Shocking Dark

How bad is it? It's a no-budget almost shot-for-shot remake of a film you know well (no, not Terminator).
Should you see it? No.

I've seen a number of Bruno Mattei films and I'm not sure which, if any, I've reviewed here - they're all pretty bad; there's even a legend that he was intentionally making bad films. In a polluted Venice of the future, well... the plot of "Alien" unfolds. There's a cyborg, there's a wild girl, there's people in cocoons and there's a point when the plot then switches over to stealing from "Terminator." The budget is low, the acting mostly by non-actors, the direction lazy and the dialogue completely lifted from other films.
